Maggie's to run their network of centres.

 

Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres are building and running a network of cancer support centres all over the UK. Designed by some of the world's best architects, they're warm, friendly, informal places, full of light and open space with a big kitchen at their heart. When you are first told you have cancer it is like a punch in the stomach. You are thrown into the middle of what seems like an overwhelming and unmanageable problem. Maggie's experts give you time and support to help you break down the problem into smaller, more manageable pieces.

 

The shock of having a rare cancer diagnosis combined with having a sudden disability, at a relatively young age, was not in my life plan. Cancer changed my life, but so did Maggie’s.”   Anita, a visitor to Maggie’s

 

A Maggie’s Centre brings people together to help combat the isolation and despair that often accompanies a cancer diagnosis. There's no need to make an appointment, or seek a referral. Anyone with cancer or their friends and family can come in and speak to one of our professional cancer support specialists, or take part in a wide range of programme activities – from nutrition workshops to creative writing classes, from receiving financial and benefits advice to personal or couples counselling. 

 

Life does go on despite everything that is happening. Your heads' spinning when you're caring for someone who has been told they have cancer and you feel that you can't focus on anything else. But you have to or everything will crumble around you and that's where Maggie's can help."

Michael Jobling, a visitor to Maggie's whose wife, Janice, died from liver cancer
